ok...so now you guys know that I love have my hamburger on a bun...and this is my newest version....made with the IP POTATO PUREE!!!!

ROASTED RED PEPPER & JALAPENO BUN!!!


i started by making my english muffin type recipe for a bun...instead of the crepe mix...i started with the IP POTATO PUREE MIX....

1 potato puree packet
1 tsp baking powder
4 tbsp water
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp evoo
2 tbsp diced roasted red pepper
7-8 diced jalapenos baby!! YUM!!

mix all in magic bullet til blended and cook in non stick skillet in an english muffin ring!! i cooked 3 mins on each side over medium heat and used non stick spray...be sure to spray your ring too!


this is what i used....


yum!!!!


cook over medium heat....3 mins on each side


oooo crispy goodness!!!


moist...not rubbery....and flavorful!!!


ahhhhhh dinner is served!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i topped my burger with lettuce, mustard, 1 tbsp of 1 carb heinz ketchup, grilled peppers and in the last minute i add my sliced onions and soft sauteed onions with just a wee bit of braggs amino for color for about 30 seconds.,,,but check with your own coach before doing the onions. I use 93/7 lean ground beef.

Default ALMOST LIKE CORNBREAD....almost.....

so the other day i tried to think of how i might be able to make something similar to cornbread!!! cause this southern chic misses cornbread!!

i mixed 1 packet of IP POTATO PUREE...and 1 packet of IP CRISPY CEREAL MIX...and got a nice result resembling something similar to cornbread!!

it all started with this gift i got for mothers day... WHOOPIE PIE baking pan!!



its just been sitting in mt cabinet....staring at me....tempting me....so i thought i'd finally put it to good use!!


I STARTED WITH THESE 2 PACKETS...

i whipped 1 egg white in my magic bullet...added 4 tbsp water....mixed again...


to my packets i added 1 tsp baking powder, and 1 tbsp rosemary (optional), and a dash garlic powder


mixed all together in magic bullet.


this made a rather thick mixture


i sprayed my pan with non stick spray and rolled out 4 balls....and added them to my pan, spacing them out so they cook evenly.


thank i pressed them down into the pan


baked on 400 for about 17 mins or until toasty browned on top!!

they look like cornbread muffins!!


dh and i had one each with supper....i sprayed mine with a little ICBINB spray....yum....this was dense...thick...not rubbery....and almost had the taste of cornbread!! woot woot!!

the other 2 muffins...i diced and toasted in the pan for CROUTONS!!





i love when an idea comes together!!!
ENJOY!!!

Default Salmon Bisque

....so i love my veggie purees....love them!!! here is one way i use my cauliflower puree...

SALMON BISQUE




i start with sauteing diced cauliflower, red bell peppers, yellow bell peppers and green onions....then i add salt, pepper, old bay seasoning to taste...i like a LOT....and some red pepper flakes!!....and a dash or 2 or 10 of hot sauce....to your taste....but i like it SPICY!!

once they are soft i add 1/2 cup chicken broth....i use college inn 5 calorie a can broth....and simmer til tender.



then i puree them all into the magic bullet...adding a little broth as needed...but not too much cause this is THICK BISQUE!!

in the same pan...i heat up some store bought salmon...fresh would be great but i don't have any!! haha



first i add a little evoo...then some diced fresh garlic....then the salmon.





add this salmon mixture into your puree


i added some smoked paprika and some parsley on top!!


ENJOY!!
THIS IS DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have you tried making your buns with the crispy cereal? I have three of those and want to try making a bread type of item...I did see your cornbread recipe and it looks awesome I just don't have a potato puree right now (will get one at WI tomorrow). Anyway, just wondering if you've got any savory recipes for the cereal?

1 TBSP lemongrass
5 cups water
simmered all for 15 mins...then strain...and add stevia to taste!!

peel and finely dice your fresh ginger


then i turned my knife blade flat and smashed....to help release the flavor


zested 1 lemon....and then juiced it too!!


simmered in 5 cups of water for 15 mins


strained my tea....ok so this is NOT a strainer...but hey whatever works right??!!!


mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
fresh hot tea....see the tiny vanilla bean specks!!
half for hot tea....and half for cold ginger ale!! woot woot

Now that I am starving. Gosh, I've been pondering this recipes and drooling (minute please, wiping down the keyboard).

Does anyone have an alternative for the Crepe Mix or the Potato Puree? I am doing the Alt IP Products and haven't seen this mentioned in any of the blogs yet.

Thanks in advance everyone!
